I don’t view myself as rebellious anymore. I am a seeker. Trying to find my own way. I was just raised in a family that believed a certain way that forced me to be allergic to religions for a long time. But I now see the power behind the institution and I’m going head first.

What I do like about the Buddha is that he is not a God or a prophet. But a simple man who was so tired of religions that he finally sat under a tree and listened to himself. To the universal truth that god is within not without. That is what I love. But I am far from perfect or all knowing. I’m just a passionate lover of humans and the universe. Attempting to find my way after an American protestant upbringing.
